Sacred Alchemy, REBT and The Sixth Night – Tools for Ascension
“Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. We are the ones we have been waiting for.” — Hopi elders
Many years ago, during a very difficult time in my life, I was exposed to a psychological model known as Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy that had profound effects on how I viewed “reality” around me. Pioneered by Dr. Albert Ellis, it was based largely on the observations of the well-known Greek philosopher Epictetus, who determined that “Man is not dismayed by events… but rather by his interpretation of events.” Using this as a guide, a newcomer to this psychological model is presented with an entirely new way of seeing how their perspective of a given situation is but one of many.
Many of you are already practicing this in your daily interactions with others… without fully realizing it. Rendering a cheery good morning will elicit a variety of responses, some “positive” and some “negative”. I have purposely put quotations around these two words because they bear further exploration. Something being positive or negative is an indication of how indoctrinated we are to this world of duality we presently are temporary residents of. Regarding your morning greeting, chances are some will respond to you with a glare of animosity and others will return it, in varying degrees. In the former, you always have a choice how to view the apparent animosity, when all you did was say good morning.
REBT teaches that we have a very limited perspective of reality, based on our upbringing, experiences, religious orientation and observations. One of those “sad sacks” may be feeling under the weather, their child may be experiencing difficulties or there may even have been a recent death in the family. These are all very personal issues and many do not air their laundry in public, so to speak. Your cheery greeting may well be a very uncomfortable reminder of the problems they face and the joy they now lack. Am I suggesting that you cross examine the person until you obtain the reason for his/her response? Of course not.
So what would be a “rational” response to this, based on REBT? First, recognition that you do not know all things, especially the private life of another individual. Secondly, acknowledge that your intent of giving positive energy – by way of your greeting – was done to share your joy or happiness with others. Thirdly, accept that just because you think that everyone should respond to your greeting in the same way, it is not reality and is extremely unfair to the one who may well be hurting intensely. You have a choice of allowing their low vibration to affect you, where you respond in kind and keep that negativity alive or…. you can accept that they’re having a bad day and do not take it personally.
An additional personal example will shed a bit more light on this. Several years ago, I spent Christmas holidays with a brother. On Christmas Day, we drove to his boss’s house in the country and it was a beautiful day. The temperature was about 60 degrees and I wanted to do something I had never done done before – I wanted to have a beer outside with my brother on that special day and consequently was able to do that. On the same day, a child received a brand new toboggan as a present but was unable to use their new toy because the snow had all but melted. Here we have two very different perspectives that were both negative and positive but pertained to the exact same event – a warm day in the middle of winter. To me, it was very positive because of my perspective but to the young child, wanting to use their toboggan in the snow, there was disappointment. Same event, different perspectives and different reactions – but each was in response to the same event.
Please re-examine the initial quote at the start of this short piece and see if you can recognize REBT in its words. No doubt, it is glaringly obvious to you now. What you may not realize is that this altering of perspectives – our viewpoint of a given situation – is actually based on the ancient art of alchemy. In several of Lord Raziel’s messages, he has stressed the importance of applying sacred alchemy to alter the energy in a given situation or event, allowing its effects to be dramatically reduced or eliminated. For example, in Proverbs there is an extremely powerful alchemical recipe: “A soft answer turneth away wrath.” Sounds simple , almost too simple, doesn’t it? However, many of you have already applied this to tense situations and have seen the results. One party raging in anger at another, while you stand quietly by and offer to work out a suitable solution or compromise. Store managers use this recipe as part of their job and yet regard it simply as customer service. This is not always an easy thing to do, especially when there is considerable anger or animosity. The key is to utilize this recipe consistently for with experience comes great wisdom.
One of the most difficult components to understand about this reality we are living in temporarily is known as duality. Ancient Hermeticists referred to the law governing this as the Principle of Polarity which states that “opposites are the same, differing only in degree”, “all truths are but half truths” and “in everything there are two poles, or opposite aspects, and that ‘opposites’ are really only the two extremes of the same thing, with many varying degrees between them. To illustrate: Heat and Cold, although “opposites,” are really the same thing, the differences consisting merely of degrees of the same thing.” This may boggle your mind and for most people, a slide comes up in the 3D conscious mind that fights against this. How is it possible that love and hate can be the same thing but opposite as well? What kind of twisted logic am I trying to peddle here?
The key is to regard those two, just as examples – love and hate – not as actual “things” but rather as energetic vibrations that can be altered. It is not too difficult to see, for most people, if you take a moment. Someone close to you, whom you have a strong affection for, betrays you. That “love” you once had is shattered to some degree, resulting in an energetic change to disappointment in the least to all-our hatred as the other extreme. These are simply varying degrees of the same energy that has been altered. Many of you are aware of how quickly it can be altered so that should give you a clue: If love can turned to anger or hate in an instant, then it stands to reason that we have the ability to apply positive energy to it, transforming it to a form that does not have a negative effect on us. Harboring ill will or anger affects our overall energy, which can be enormously draining. From an alchemical perspective, it is referred to as transmutation – applying a higher vibration to over come a lower one.
A quick side note that may shed some light as to how one actually applies alchemy to these types of situations. I offer this for a very specific reason, which I will detail below and is extremely important, especially during these 3 days, which the Maya referred to as the beginning of the “Sixth Night”. For some time, during my awakening, I was literally plagued with a fair amount of rage at people who had injured me badly. In times of need, never doubt that Spirit will bring along what you require to assist you… but They will not do the work for you. It was suggested that each time a nightmare played out in my mind of the abuse, I was to stop everything I was doing and close my eyes. The important component was to visualize standing in front of them, and then reaching out a hand (I will freely admit that I couldn’t do this at first) shaking it and saying this: “I FORGIVE YOU AND I WISH YOU WELL.” And then turning and walking away. The first several times, I simply went through the motions and then one day, I completed this exercise and was astounded to find that I actually meant it. Instead of the handshake, I was actually able to visualize giving them a hug (this took considerably more attempts), speaking the words of power and empowerment and then turning and walking away. This took quite some time but it was incredibly effective and a prime example of one way to alter – or transmute – the lower vibration of anger to a different degree or rate of vibration.
It is imperative that I do add a quick note here. We are given these physical vehicles to experience the reality of 3D and are responsible for its maintenance. I am NOT – in any way – stating or implying that we should not take steps to defend ourselves from physical harm. If you would fight with your last breath defending a loved one, you must learn that this is how you must regard this physical vehicle that has served you faithfully and allowed you to learn and grow. The line is crossed, however, when one uses or threatens the use of harm or injury on another. My point is that you would gladly give your life for your child… you are just as loved by The Divine Creator, and the Divine Plan requires your unique help to see it to fruition. It is never wrong to take steps to ensure your own safety.
THE SIXTH NIGHT
Which brings us to the main focus of this post – the Mayan Sixth Night, which is presently occurring, September 23 – 26. Many of you are feeling the effects of this and for good reasons. According to CJ Calleman, there are three more incidents of “Cosmic Convergence” that are to occur between now and the end of the Mayan calendar – Oct. 28, 2011 – and each will be more powerful and intense than the last. Yes, many believe that the calendar ends on Dec. 21/2012 but I do not believe this to be accurate. In fact, I believe it is purposeful manipulation of translation, and it has not been done for reasons that benefit humanity, but rather to lull us into a false sense of security. I will add to this at the end of the post. These waves of energy that are now hitting earth during this Sixth Night are extremely intense, as many of you can attest, and are of paramount importance, in terms of this ascension process. The disturbing aspect for many is that not all will be ready for this process when we do reach the pinnacle of the Seventh Day on 11/11/11. In fact, based on what my own spiritual sources have told me, there will be only a very tiny percentage of the whole who will be able complete this transformation at that time.
This is partly due to the numerous mixed messages being channeled by numerous entities, each claiming to know all things. Any entity that tells you this is being deceptive. Additionally, while I’m on this, please be very careful about messages that claim to be from enlightened ET’s. For example, the Galactic Federation claims, through many of its alleged representatives, that when they finally arrive, they are going to share wondrous new technology with us that will transform the way we live.
QUESTION: If we are aware that Mother Earth is transiting to the 5th density, with many humans with her, why would be in need of new technology for the old earth? Please think about that….
ANSWER: I will not force my insights on anybody but will try to explain, based on my own insight and what I have been told by my spirit team, including Lord Raziel. There will be a “fist wave” of souls who will undergo the transformation process and their job is to pave the way for others to follow. At present, not one ET will tell you exactly what the ascension process entails in its entirety, in terms of what will happen physically or energetically. They will give vague explanations and flowery ‘feel good” messages about how glorious it will be but not how the process actually happens – how quickly or slowly it will be, in terms of duration. Another component of this is a bit more sinister and the reason I and many others have implored you to be very wary of tall promises from ET’s that may or may not be who they claim to to be.
For example… one of the many entities who allegedly speaks for the Galactic Federation is known as the Ascended Master Kuthumi. It may surprise you to know that this being was the one channeled largely by Madame Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society. Her group started a publishing company originally called LUCIFER PRESS. Originally started in 1922 to publish the writings of Madame Blavatsky, including Isis Unveiled, by Alice Bailey and her husband, they had to change the name to LUCIS TRUST for obvious reasons. Now here’s the kicker…. LUCIS TRUST PRINTS AND DISSEMINATES MUCH OF THE MATERIALS FOR THE UNITED NATIONS. It gets even darker, in Alice Bailey’s own words. In an Alice Bailey book called “Education for a New Age”; she suggests that in the new age “World Citizenship should be the goal of the enlightened, with a world federation and a world brain.” In other words – a One World Government New World Order.
Are you beginning to see the threads unraveling? These things are not coincidental. Consider this…
“To this end, the Lucis Trust, under the leadership of Foster and Alice Bailey, started a group called ‘World Goodwill’ – an official non-governmental organization within the United Nations. The stated aim of this group is ‘to cooperate in the world of preparation for the reappearance of the Christ’.” [One Earth, the magazine of the Findhorn Foundation, October/November 1986, Vol. 6, Issue 6, p.24.]
And who is this “Christ?” It is none other than Lucifer, according to Blavatsky and her followers.
She claims that religion has it totally backward….. the one known as Christ in religion is really a dark entity while Lucifer is the true Morning Light, the true Christ. Make of this what you will but the main component that I wished to bring to your attention is that Kuthumi, Sananda, and Morya were the entities that she channeled for her series of books that established the tenets of the Theosophical Society.
Confusing, no? My apologies for the side note but my mentors have been adamant that this is brought to the attention of those who have the ears to hear.
So why all of these seemingly random threads, when the title suggests tools for ascension? As I mentioned, my understanding is that there will be an initial wave who will be occupying the same types of positions that our spirit guides now occupy. They are the way-showers and include the well-known “144,000”, plus the “Twelve and One”. Some will be going directly to upper 5D to assist in that density, while others will be transiting between 5D and 3D, bringing the real message of the Divine Creator to the masses, many of whom will refuse to listen. The stories of “miracles’ performed by the Christed One are not fantasy and will be displayed by this first wave.
Which brings us to a conclusion of this piece – for now. Carl Johann Calleman has given two suggestions that we must incorporate into our lives, especially now during this Sixth Night:
1) Committing to consistently let divine guidance rather than our egos decide our actions and the direction of our lives.
2) Declaring our independence from the dark side including surrendering the right to use the dark side to fight the dark side in others.
He suggests that what we set in place now, during this Sixth Night, will become permanent as we enter into the Seventh Day.
This post may contain aspects that some will find troubling, others who will deny and still others who will seek out their own answers. Of the three, I would highly suggest the final option – seek out answers for yourself. Any school student will tell you that it is hardly practical to consider writing a thesis and using only one source of reference. How much more significant is this Ascension than a simple thesis?
And don’t be shy to check out some of my recorded poetry from my Sword of the Seven Stars Album. My personal favorites:
Sword of the Seven Stars : A cosmic sentinel is tasked with delivering a newly-made soul to its host but this is no ordinary assignment. The soul essence is on a covert mission that becomes inextricably linked with the sentinel. Behind Lucifer’s back, a demon mage has hatched a plot to foment a rebellion on the lower planes, while the Grand Proctor hatches his own plot to steal souls.
Cosmic Draft: A cosmic sentinel completes his training and begins his role with pride but is soon stopped cold by a prince of night – the pretender. The prince has enormous resources at his disposal and it may be impossible for the sentinel to get a place of safety where he can rally allies.
Bright Demon : A soul finally completes its training, under the 7 Lords, stepping into its cosmic role as a sentinel. To stop the slaughter of a defenseless race, he takes their general prisoner, and prompts the rage of a prince of night. With a massive army at his disposal, the sentinel becomes his next target.
